you can blow these images way up. Def a slime mold but not arcyria. There is one fruiting body to pay close attention to in the first picture. Its (right center) white and has plasmodium still attached to the sporangium which looks to be a cluster of metatrichia or tubifera. Looks like it was interrupted and never fully formed.
Is this on dung?
